Farrell: Pelosi Snubs the Constitution with Senate Obstruction
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to delay sending articles of impeachment to the Senate is not just bad politics for Democrats. It is an affront to the constitutional impeachment process.
Democrats believe that delaying sending articles of impeachment to the Senate gives them enhanced leverage over the Senate’s trial process. Pelosi seems delusional with “power,” since she is simply holding back something the Senate never wanted to deal with in the first place. Maybe she could enhance her posture by also denying senators all the nutty legislation her caucus pushes through, that’ll show ‘em!
